"He's perfect to play alongside Ozil and Ramsey" - Arsenal legend urges Arsene Wenger to complete deal


Former Arsenal defender Mikael Silvestre believes Alexandre Lacazette would be perfect for Arsene Wenger's setup.

The Frenchman is a confirmed target for the Gunners but they are yet to reach a financial agreement with Lyon.

Club president Jean-Michel Aulas confirmed that an offer has been received but has been rejected by the French giants.

"He is very active, he can play both sides, technically he is very gifted and he has been scoring 25, 30 goals for the last four years in the French league so he is a proven goalscorer," Silvestre told talkSPORT.

"In terms of adaptability to Arsenal's style, he has all the qualities. He is very intelligent, he can make up the play with Ozil, with Ramsey, with Welbeck.

"I think he would be a great addition for Arsenal. And he speaks French!"
